Natalee Holloway Declared Dead

A judge has ruled Natalee Holloway dead, more than six years after she vanished in Aruba during a high school graduation trip.

With both of her parents present in the courtroom, Judge Alan King said he would sign an order to allow Holloways’ death certificate to be issued.

From CBS News:

“We’ve been dealing with her death for the last six and a half years,” Dave Holloway said after a brief hearing. He said the judge’s order closes one chapter in a long ordeal, but added: “We’ve still got a long way to go to get justice.

Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba on May 30, 2005. The 18-year-old was last seen leaving a bar early that morning with a young Dutchman, Joran van der Sloot. Her body was never found and the ensuing searches for the young woman would reap intense media scrutiny and worldwide attention.

    Although, in our Minds, we all considered this to be so, somehow, hearing it— “Declared Dead”— really hits, and is just so Sad all over again. Besides all the Mental Anguish and Pain and Heartache suffered by The Holloway Family these years, it must have been very hard to hear these Words put so directly and final in that Courtroom. I suppose they have come to accept that Natalee is not Alive, but, living, and perhaps dying, constantly wondering.. never knowing what happened to her.. where she might be.. I can not begin to imagine, and the Death Certificate is still a mere piece of paper filled with Question Marks. I pray for a Miracle for Beth Holloway— perhaps after Joran VanDerSloot has spent some years in Confinement— that she will learn the Truth. For now, God Bless them, keep them Strong, and yes, keep Hope and Faith for that Miracle.

    va der sloot is, as I have said over and over, a monster.
    Natalee is surely dead from his hands,,,,,,,,,,we all know this.
    I want to say to her parents not to let him victimize you in your thoughts or actions but that is a lofty bit of advice and I am not sure if it’s even possible.
    He toyed with them,promising answers and then backed out……….of course he would being the error in humanity he is.He took their daughter,their money ,their trust, their sanity and drained a part from them that nothing can fill………..All we can hope for is that there is SOME type of mental and emotional closure for them,
    I hope I live long enough to see him pay the piper.He heads my list of evil in the form of a man.
